Following their 2017 electronic comeback, Weather Diaries, Ride have been hard at work. Barely two years after the 90s shoegaze titans reformed, Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Loz Colbert and Steve Queralt are out with This Is Not A Safe Place. The band’s new lease on life was anything but a fluke: their 6th studio album finds a calculated balance between dream pop, krautrock and electronic samples. Risk-taking, as implied by the title, is frequent, starting with the introduction, R.I.D.E. The nightmarish welcome blends in maniacal whispers that are simultaneously an invitation (Ride!) and a statement (Ride!). Then, the mood shifts considerably: Future Love promises budding romance over bittersweet shoegaze and jangle-pop guitar leads. The contrast between heartfelt rêveries and 80s style industrial bangers carries on through the rest of the album: Repetition anchors the latter style through a Juno-6 bass line which lends it a near-Kraftwerk vibe. Andy Bell had a few words about the song himself, saying “It was one of the very first songs written for the album, and has always felt to me like one of the best songs I've written.”. Well Andy, you could’ve said that about most of the songs on this record, and we’d be hard pressed to disagree. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Nordic Electronic in 11 Artists

The musicians of Northern Europe have always brought their personal Arctic twist to all genres of music, and the world of electronic music is no exception. Here’s an overview of 11 Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish artists who have taken techno, house, disco and dub towards new horizons.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
